New Year's Resolution: More Projects + Tidying Up!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!



From our CNET feature at International CES to our summer launch of APEX and our latest campaign for IGNITE, 2016 has been a great year for us at ZeroHour! As our team continues to grow, we are able to put more resources into development and production, and make new products available more quickly. We'll never forget our early adopters, and are thankful for your continued support.

Our New Year's Resolution: To make 2017 bigger and better than ever! We plan to introduce not one, not two, but at least three new products next year! Some will continue ZeroHour's mission to bring you the best light and power products for everyday carry, but we also have a couple ideas up our sleeve that will surprise you. Of course, we'll never abandon our commitment to quality products with reliable materials and versatile functionality.

We'll continue to give you our best next year, and wish you a wonderful 2017!

IGNITE PRODUCTION UPDATE

Production is well underway on our newest product, IGNITE, and we are about 75% done with the individual parts. We hope to complete manufacturing within the next two weeks. We then move into the assembly phase, and finally into retail packaging of our assembled product.

We’re currently projecting to start shipping IGNITE at the end of January 2017. We'll also be receiving a new production run of APEX tactical pens, so pre-order yours today!

PHOTOS & VIDEO

After all the parts are machined, they are sent for anodization and finishing, which takes place at an off-site location. We will try to capture footage of this process to present in a future newsletter.

Here is a brief video and current manufacturing photos showing IGNITE parts up close:



NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION: TIDY UP!

As you consider your new year's resolutions, we have a recommendation. Marie Kondo has revolutionized personal organization with her KonMari Method, which is simple: Put your items in a pile, category by category - keep only what “sparks joy” - discard the rest. We know how hard it is to take that first step, so we're happy to share a companion guide to help you get it done. John Mullins has completed the entire KonMari Method, and his new book, Your Tidying Up Companion, offers a clear and insightful approach. He's shared the life-changing results with us personally, and we have to agree, the method works!



We've just purchased our copies on Amazon Kindle - download your copy here.

We look forward to sharing more about IGNITE with you soon. See you next year!
